135is DSB black leather/blue stitch 6MT

I placed my order (135is DSB manual trans) at the dealer on January 10th, got a vehicle inquiry report with no production number and status code 047. Production number was assigned on January 16th, hotline said "scheduled for production with no confirmed production date yet". Vehicle went into production status on January 28th and was completed February 4th.

The original estimate I got from the dealer was for an early May delivery (about 17 weeks from ordering), today's email said they were able to advance production by about 3 weeks. Hoping that I may see it sooner than that, just have to keep checking the hotline. I'm just happy that it appears I will in fact get my car, there was another thread where someone had been told that 135is production had already ended for the 2013 MY.

Feb 19 update: in transit, should arrive in Brunswick March 11

My timeline so far:
Placed order at dealership (status 047): 1/10
Received production number (status 112): 1/16
Vehicle in production: 1/28
Transport to port of exit: 2/7
At port of exit: 2/9
In transit: 2/19

The BMW website was stuck at "Order Documented" when tracking by my production number, but when I added another car using the partial VIN instead, it updated to the current status with the correct colors/options.
